Is that the same as you got in your rig. This ram allready seems kick butt and I havnt even played with it
I have those exact sticks they are awesome. Incredibly versatile: 7-7-7-16 @ 1600mhz, 8-8-8-16 or around 1800mhz 9-9-9-24 for 2000mhz and 10-10-10-26 for up to 2250 mhz. Mine have handled up to 1.75 volts too for many aquamark runs

I can't wait to get my paws ont heir 2400mhz sticks *drools*

Lol, I'm embarrassed to say that I have the tridents in my 24/7 rig languishing with loose timings and an anemic clock. I haven't done a serious external hard drive photo/video backup in months so I haven't wanted to tweak that rig at all.....

Okay so what do you think of this board for a mod? the reasons I chose this is because:

1. Its cheap
2. 3 PCIEx16
3. 8 Pin power
4. 775 (no need to upgrade CPU)
5. DDR2 (no need to upgrade RAM)
6. Its cheap ( no big loss if mod goes wrong)

EDIT:Im not looking for abetter board, just something with a lot of options and something to thrash on the cheap
The board runs x8,x8,x8 with 3 cards installed. If you upgraded your CPU down the road you might notice some bottleneck.....wait if you're thinking 3-way GTX's with an e5200...that's a huge bottleneck. But if you're going to be folding, x8 will be fine. what are your goals for the board change?

As you turn the trimmer to decrease resistance and increase vcore, the amount of change you see from each turn will increase more rapidly the farther you go. So you'll have to be more careful at the highest voltages because a little bit of a turn will give you a much larger response.

2) The Vdroop mod I've seen both 50K and 100K resistors used. The difference you'd see between using the two resistors follows the same logic described above.

Some examples of the different ones used:



Is this in the list yet?

Pizza's gonna kill me..I gotta send him his CPU
Think it will come in time for me to tweak it for the LLC comp?

The caps did the trick on the 9800gtx+. Gained about an extra 10-15mhz core stable. My benchable went up also, ran a few test at 910mhz core. May be able to pull off higher with some more vgpu but Ill wait till I do my other one with the i7 rig.

You guys were right that ram does rock, passed some memtest at 6-7-6-20 1T at just about 780mhz with 1.60vdimm.

hi, sorry, but i could easily post pictures of my x600 i want to vmod, however, i would like to know how to work it out myself? i get the part of you have to try find a datasheet for the ic and work out which pin is FB and measure the resistance betweenn fb and ground and times it by 20 to find what vr i need, however, there are 5 ICs on the back of my card.

how do i know which IC will be the one for gpu and which will be for mem? i know i could easily post pics and you guys would tell me, but what i want to know is how you know which is for which?

cheers to anyone who can give me any ways to tell

the card is an x600 pro for the record

Basically, you follow the voltage path coming into the card via either the PCI bus or a PCIe power connector. Personally, the PCIe connectors are easier for me to follow. As you follow the path take notice to any caps in the path. Once they change from 16V to 6.3v or smaller you should be in the area of the IC for you mod. You should also be able to follow multiple paths from the IC to the GPU. It's really kind of a visual thing.

awesome, well, i have found what i think will be the GPU IC, and will try find the ram one now.

the gpu one im looking at has a few paths leading to the gpu, and it looks like its going to the legs of some 6.3v caps along the way, then finally makes its way to the gpu, i will post pics for the pros to confirm before i go ahead and do it, but yea.

rep+, super useful info for me :-)

edit: congrats man, was looking through the thread about the timing is everything prizes and it looks like you scored yourelf some $$$

edit2: the IC i think is for the gpu is a IRU3037A which looks like it says IOR3037A, but it is actually a IRU by the looks of the datasheet...

found the datasheet here:
http://rocky.digikey.com/WebLib/Inte...ta/IRU3037.pdf

pin 1 is fb pin 4 is gnd, so after one of you guys have confirmed its the right ic(when i post pics) then ill go ahead and do that :-)

I need an opinion on something, it looks like my current username is unacceptable & I need to change it but can't make up my mind. I'll have to try to change it at hwbot too, I was thinking of a few

ineXact
Any of these work for me, or can someone think of something better?

Billg8z: worst case scenario you can look up the datasheet to every IC. vGPU is generally going to be named like "4 phased pwm, uses: gpu controlling etc", memory should mention memory.

also I think that's the RAM IC you posted. GPU IC should be a bit more complicated

FtW 420: the mods are making you get rid of your name?... damn they should have done that 700+ posts, and a few hundred hwbot points ago. If's it's an absolute must you change it I like your suggestion ineXact but here are a few more

@Pizza-Thanks for the info. I was just looking for something to thrash and abuse. For my next rig to upgrade Im definitely going iX(not sure which one)definitely 1366 socket cuz 1156 looks like its going to be dead in the future and i9 is going to use the 1366. I had know idea its bandwidth was only x8, oh well. Just going to go big and thrash my current setup I suppose.

@BillG8z-You are definitely on the right path as its a buck chip but its hard to really know without seeing the card.

@FTW-hillbillieonPcP where do you come up with this stuff, that is great but I dont think theyll like that one either. That really sucks man cuz you name is all over HWBot. But no matter what you change it to WE will know that was you.
